We went there for a show incorporated with Xmas music and it was impressive! Highly recommend it. The visual was amazing and the program is worth it. Looking forward to the Pink Floyd program!

Great experience. The seats were comfortable and the music was well chosen. However the music show was the only show we could see, since there are no English programs. However the staff is nice. We bought tickets online are there were no troubles with them.

We went to their Queen show which was absolutely amazing. The seats are very comfortable. It's a nice "getaway" ... totally relaxing.

We pitched up in the morning expecting to go round a museum that would explain about planets, stars, nebulas and galaxys - fat chance. They run multimodal shows several times a day so we had to come back later (messed up my planning). We watched...More
